Progressives Say Pelosi ‘Caves to Trump, Attacks AOC, Hurts Children’

The far-left Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) sent an email to supporters Monday night that demonstrated exactly how fractured the Democratic Party is right now.

“Pelosi caves to Trump, attacks AOC, hurts children,” the PCCC’s email subject line read. Here’s the bulk of their email message to supporters:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez urged Nancy Pelosi to fight hard to undo the pain at Trump’s child detainment camps. Pelosi ignored her, tried to negotiate with Trump, and CAVED disastrously. She passed (with mostly Republican votes) a bill giving billions to ICE and the camps with no strings attached. Then…

In the NY Times this weekend, Pelosi lashed out at AOC and our friends, Congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley. She called them “irrelevant” and said they’re just “four people” — nothing more.

Not okay! AOC and The Squad have changed the entire national debate. Unlike Pelosi, they are leading the national conversation — in a bold and inspiring direction. Unlike Pelosi, they’re standing up to Trump.

Pelosi has come under fire in recent days for her comments to the New York Times’ Maureen Dowd. But her criticism of Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of “the squad” came after Ocasio-Cortez’s spokesperson said that the “greatest threat to mankind is the cowardice of the Democratic Party.”

Ocasio-Cortez has used Twitter as a vehicle to attack Pelosi and added fuel to the fire on Monday with this tweet:

The PCCC’s email then asks supporters to “show solidarity with AOC” by donating $3 to the liberal organization. In return, contributors would receive a “I Stand with AOC” bumper sticker.

The group went on to praise Ocasio-Cortez even more later in the same email. “AOC is not ‘irrelevant.’ She’s a true leader. She’s fighting for us,” the email read.

“We supported Pelosi as Speaker in January against more conservative alternatives,” the PCCC wrote. “But let’s not pretend she is a master strategist.”

Nancy Pelosi is also royally messing up on impeachment. It’s been proven that many voters still have no idea what crimes Trump actually committed, and impeachment would bring that to light. But instead, thanks in part to Pelosi’s lack of leadership, Trump just achieved his highest approval ratings ever in ABC’s poll.

It’s a stinging rebuke for Pelosi from the far-left corners of the Democratic Party. While the 2020 election could reshuffle the make-up of the House of Representatives entirely, including the potential that Republicans re-take control, rest assured that these Democrats will likely remember this bitter intra-party fight when it comes time to pick their leader in early 2021.
